Social accountability for rural water services

Will governments make sure everyone has access to water if nobody holds them accountable? How can citizens hold their governments to account? This RWSN e-discussion took place from 19 February to 9 March, 2018 and focused on the following topics:
Week 1: Social accountability in different contexts;
Week 2: Sharing tools, methods and strategies for social accountability;
